David Beckham opened Adidas’s Dubai Homecourt flagship store on Tuesday, delighting the thousands of fans who had ventured to the Mall of the Emirates to get a glimpse of the football star.
   Beckham personally welcomed 50 winners of an Instagram competition, who were individually greeted and photographed, and some managed selfies with the footballer.
   The 375 m² store is designed to bring a more authentic in-store experience, says Adidas. The store features the Arena Façade, which resembles an entrance gate, welcoming each visitor with a “sound shower” of cheering fans as one enters; a Team Room, a large fitting area and social space allowing shoppers to try on products; and the Shoebase, a bar with an interactive table and two touch-screens connected to the Adidas website to help customers select a product.
   Those present included Adidas directors and vice-presidents from the Middle East and North Africa regions: Osman Ayaz, Jason Thomas, Tushar Goculdas, Jad Chouman, and Siddarth Jham.
   Beckham said, ‘I always love coming to Dubai—it’s a special place that’s constantly evolving, just like Adidas and their stores. Spending some time here today, it was great to get a sense of the energy people have for sport. In Dubai I’ve met people from all around the world who are united in their passion for sport.’
